This chapter suggests that, albeit in different ways and places and for different men, geography is part of what we have come to term the “Scientific Revolution,” which is generally recognized and widely discussed as a historical phenomenon. Even admitting of the view of one leading scholar that whatever it was, it may not have existed, the Scientific Revolution has been treated in an extensive range of work over the past twenty years or so as both a historical problem and a historiographical moment.

Keywords: scientific revolution; geography; historical problem; science; space; natural philosophy
